    Maybo SIA Physical Intervention Training for Door Supervisors

    Maybo is a leader in the development of conflict management and physical intervention training for door supervisors

    Proven experience and trusted expertise

    Maybo provides door supervisors with the skills to learn how best to recognise, respond and resolve situations that represent a risk to colleagues and customers.

    Maybo's SIA approved physical intervention programme is the preferred choice for most of the major security, event and venue operators and formed a core part of the mandatory training provided to over 20,000 personnel at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

    We also worked with the British Institute of Innkeeping Awarding Body to develop risk reduction guidance and the first conflict management qualifications for the licensed retail sector. These awards became the benchmark upon which the Security Industry Authority modelled the conflict management and physical intervention aspects of its regulatory requirements for door supervisors. 

    We believe that most conflict can be avoided or defused through good customer service and positive communication skills, however, additional physical intervention and incident response training also helps to ensure that security personnel can respond appropriately to situations that carry heightened safety risks.

    Employers can deliver our end-user programme within the private security industry by becoming a Maybo Licensed Centre.

    eLearning

    Maybo's eLearning programmes utilise the latest learning technologies, realistic scenarios and interactive exercises to offer an engaging self-study learning experience.

    eLearning can play a valuable role within a blended learning strategy, underpinning the knowledge and reducing staff abstraction time, or in some instances as a complete solution. It also works well for induction and refresher training.

    To find out more or for volume purchases contact our team or visit our eLearning store for individual purchases.

    eLearning is also known as self-directed learning. It often precedes Classroom or Virtual Classroom training to provide a foundation of knowledge in advance - this is known as a blended approach.

    Classroom

    Maybo designs and delivers training to meet your requirements and can deliver direct to your staff wherever you need it. We take time to understand your training needs and the unique challenges and scenarios your colleagues face, to ensure our Classroom courses are highly relevant. Learners receive superb resources and certificates with a range of accreditation and qualification options.

    Classroom training can be combined with eLearning to form a blended learning strategy, underpinning the knowledge and reducing staff abstraction time.

    Classroom training is delivered by a trainer at an agreed venue. It is also sometimes called face-to-face or in-person training.

    Virtual Classroom

    Maybo designs and delivers Virtual Classroom training to meet your requirements.

    Virtual Classroom training enables staff to benefit from engaging team training with high-levels of participation delivered remotely by a skilled facilitator over video conferencing software including Zoom and MS Teams.

    Virtual Classroom training can also be combined powerfully with eLearning to form a blended learning strategy, with eLearning underpinning the knowledge and reducing staff abstraction time.

    Virtual Classroom training is live, participatory training delivered remotely by a trainer with video conferencing software.

    Train the Trainer

    Maybo offers a Train the Trainer model that equips experienced trainers to deliver Maybo's accredited training curricula within their own organisation.

    We run regular courses on a variety of subjects that include supporting people with complex needs, positive behaviour support, preventing conflict and behaviours of concern, safer approaches to de-escalation and conflict resolution, personal safety, assault avoidance and low arousal handling skills.

    To find out more contact our team.

    Trainers receive access to Maybo's online resource centre where they can find everything they need to deliver and certify Maybo training in-house.
